I think many parts of We Can Run would fall under this catagory

Gaaaaggguuughhhhh.

I understand that's why Baskin-Robbins has 31 flavors, but this song always comes across as a very feeble attempt at jumping on the latest "cause" de jour.

I don't think I have ever heard the song in its entirety as I can't find the skip button or change back over to the Bluegrass channel on XM fast enough.

As far as the other songs? I think they are intentionally politically ambiguous and that's just what the boys intended.

(Note to Rob - is this a double split infinitive or is it two halves of an infinitive or have I had too much coffee?)

Yeah, it's pretty heavy handed and there is no area of interpretation. Mydland pretty much hits you over the head with it.
